2019 calendar for Open Doors career events released

Our Open Doors series of career events is back for 2019. Open Doors events are an opportunity to get some genuine insight on how to begin a film, TV, animation or games career.

The pop-up two-hour events are open to young people and mid-career changers alike, and feature roundtable discussion with experts from across the screen industries offering their advice on getting in and moving up. All events finish with an open networking session where you can connect with professionals and peers.

Extremely helpful, particularly given that the industry is so heavily reliant on networking and that we could speak to, question and learn from people in the same positions we are or once were. I appreciated gratefully the opportunity and feel it will help me in the future.
